10 things I like about Me

First, I would like to thank everyone that visited me yesterday! Boy was that fun! I really enjoyed each and every comment and I read every single one =) Thanks so much!!

Now I thought I would do something new. I'm going to list '10 things I like about Me'. Then I would like you to list '10 things you like about You', in My Comments. On Friday I will put each entry into a hat and I'll scoop out a winner! The prize is a Mystery (Even to me!! LOL).

Okay onto my list:

1. I like my eyes.
2. I like my hair.
3. I like my teeth (they are so straight!)
4. I love my sense of humor (I think I'm hilarious!!)
5. I like my hands.
6. I like my photographs.
7. I like my tenderness.
8. I like my sense of family.
9. I like my appetite!
10. I like my legs (they are so smooth. LOL)

Whew! That was hard. But I think it's necessary for us to look in the mirror, or into the monitor, and declare the things we like about ourselves. Everyone needs a confidence builder! Everyone needs to feel good about themselves. And it can be one of the hardest things to accomplish. Maybe this can help =) So come on! Share with me the things you like about yourself! I promise, you'll feel good after wards...

It is some much easier to come up with 10 things I don't like about myself. I was raised that if I focus on the things I like about myself, I will surely become more proud! It would be prideful to even speak about the things that I like. So here goes:

1.My perception - I usually think the best of people until proven wrong, and even then I try to build them up.
2. My eyes - light up like a Christmas tree when I see an old friend I've been told.
3. My hands - they cuddle, type, bake, cook, play piano, etc. etc. etc.
4. My feet - they've carried the load of me all my days
5. My hair - it is soft, grey and I look better with hair than without
6. My voice - I love to sing praises in harmony - nobody else might like it - but I do!
7. My smile - I can light up a room when I'm not down in the dumps!
8. My attitude - It's been tweaked and changed and perfected by HIM over the years and I kinda like it now! It's positive!
9. My openness - I can allow people into my space very easily - comes from working with seniors who just want to be cuddled sometimes.
10. My deep thinking - I love to search out the things of God and how HE is working in life.

I'm grateful for LIFE in HIM! Thanks for this creative idea!

7. My hair when it does what it want!
8. My legs, I have pretty nice legs for a girl my size

Hooray! I do like me! lol Lucy you!

What a great idea! Very thought provoking, too. Here goes:

1 - I like my caring nature.
2 - I like that I usually look for the good in people rather than the bad.
3 - I like that I find humor in the oddest things!
4 - I like that although I am aging (late 50's) I am NOT OLD!!! At least not in spirit or in attitude!
5 - I like that I'm fairly adventurous and not afraid to try things, like learning to ride a bike in my 50's!
6 - I like that I am a good cook, and that I enjoy cooking and entertaining for friends and family.
7 - I like that I can find something for which to be thankful even when times are tough.
8 - I like that I am trying to be a dutiful, caring, caregiving daughter to my elderly parents, even though sometimes they make it really hard.
9 - I like that I find it necessary to find joy wherever I can find it!
10 - I like that I my spiritual gifts are those of servant and encourager.

Blessings to you!!! Becky G. @ http://camelliacottagediary.blogspot.com
